I'm getting paranoid Toni. Really fucking paranoid. Just because I think everyone hates me doesn't mean they don't, know what I mean? Someone is out to get me. It's that fucking mayor! He's gonna blame me for all the shit that's been going down in the neighborhood. All of it! Not just the crap that I did but all of it.
Salvatore Leone believing that the Mayor of Liberty City is out to get him and that he'll be blamed for all of the city's troubles by him.

Driving Mr Leone is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories given to protagonist Toni Cipriani by Salvatore Leone from his home in the Saint Mark's district of Portland, Liberty City.


Toni enters Salvatore's office to find Salvatore pointing a gun at him, with Salvatore accusing Toni of talking about him behind his back. Realizing his own paranoia, Salvatore apologizes to Toni and shifts his focus to Mayor Roger C. Hole, whom he accuses of blaming Salvatore for the city's troubles, including those that he claims he is not responsible for. Salvatore decides to do something about it, so he and Toni head to the ferry terminal in Harwood.

The duo arrive at the terminal to be greeted by the police and FBI, who immediately give chase. With the police on their tail, Salvatore instructs Toni to drive over the unfinished Callahan Bridge. A ramp has been put on to the bridge, which allows Toni and Salvatore to make the jump from Portland Island to Staunton Island.

After successfully crossing the bridge, they then make their way to a Leone Family safehouse in Newport, with Salvatore deciding to look around the new place.


Toni Cipriani goes to see Salvatore Leone in his house's office, only to be greeted by Salvatore pointing a gun at him.
Salvatore: Well?
Toni: Well what?
Salvatore: Don't play dumb with me, kid. I was playing dumb when your mother was still turning tricks.
Toni: What's your problem?
Salvatore: I know what you've been saying about me. You think I'm an idiot? Huh? Is that what you think?
Toni: Boss, I ain't been saying nothing about you.
Salvatore: What the fuck...I don't know what's happening to me.
Salvatore puts his gun down.
Salvatore: Jesus. I'm getting paranoid, Toni, really fucking paranoid. Just because I think everyone hates me, doesn't mean they don't, know what I mean? Someone is out to get me. It's that fucking mayor! He's gonna blame me for all that shit that's been going down in the neighborhood! All of it! Not just the crap that I did, but all of it! Come on, let's go take care of this.
Toni and Salvatore leave the house and go to the Harwood Ferry Terminal.
Salvatore: Head towards the ferry terminal.
Toni: But the strike's still on, there won't be any ferries.
Salvatore: Just drive, I'll do the thinking.
Toni and Salvatore arrive at the ferry terminal, only to find the LCPD and the Feds waiting for them.
Salvatore: Jesus Christ! The cops are crawling all over this place! Get us the fuck out of here!
Toni: Where we going?
Salvatore: Callahan Bridge!
Toni: Callahan Bridge ain't finished yet!
Salvatore: We're both gonna be finished if you don't drive! Now move it!
Toni and Salvatore head towards Callahan Bridge while being chased by cops. They eventually reach the bridge and come across a ramp.
Salvatore: We're gonna need everything this piece of shit's got! Punch it, Toni!
Toni jumps the ramp.
Toni and Salvatore land on the Staunton Island side of the bridge.
Salvatore: Toni, you did it! I knew I could trust you! I could kiss you if you'd shaved! Now listen, I know a place where we can both lie low for a while. Come on, let's go.
Toni and Salvatore head to a safehouse located in Newport. After Toni and Salvatore arrive, an LCN report plays.
LCN Reporter: The industrial action that had cut off Portland from the rest of the city has finally come to an end, or has it? Although all the subway and ferry routes are now officially open, militant workers are continuing with their blockade in parts of the city. The elevator bridge connecting Staunton Island and Shoreside Vale has been shut down. The strikers refuse to believe assurances made by city officials over the future of the ferries.
Salvatore: Yeah, this is the place. I'm gonna take a look around, see what's what. I might see you here later.


The reward for completing the mission is $4,000 and the next mission, A Walk in the Park, is unlocked. Staunton Island is now accessible, and the ability to obtain a five-star wanted level is also unlocked. The Staunton Island Safehouse is now available to the player, which allows them to save their game and store up to two vehicles in the garage. The Callahan Bridge can now be crossed in both directions using the ramps now placed on the bridge, and the player can now use the ferry and the subway system to travel between Portland and Staunton. The player can also access boats that are docked on Staunton Island. Also the Micro SMG, Assault Rifle, Sniper Rifle, Grenades and the Body Armor can be bought from the Ammu-Nation at Newport on Staunton Island.

Post mission phone call

Toni Cipriani: Yep?

Salvatore Leone: Toni? It's Sal. I need to talk, but I don't trust these cell phones for shit. I'll call you on the public phone outside the Court House.


  • A glitch in the PlayStation 2 version of the game exists where Salvatore may be inexplicably arrested the moment the mission begins.
